Teleflex Medical OEM − a global leader in high performance suture for the orthopedic market – is pleased to announce an expanded array of sizes, colors, and patterns for the Force Fiber family of sutures. Force Fiber is an innovative combination of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) yarn and a unique, proprietary braid design that creates an incredibly strong, durable, pliable, and lubricious suture.
Force Fiber has a coreless configuration that is flatter than most polyblend sutures allowing each successive knot to better lock up against the last and providing outstanding knot security. Scientific studies indicate Force Fiber significantly outperforms polyblend suture of comparable size for straight pull tensile and knot tensile strength.
Designed for a wide range of procedures, Force Fiber is cleared by the FDA for use in approximation and/or ligation of soft tissues, including the use of allograft tissue for orthopedic procedures. (Source: Teleflex Medical OEM)
